In Thật Xa Thật Gần, singer S.T formerly of the boy band 365DaBand plays the role of creepy stalker who stages a fake kidnapping to win the favor of the girl that he is interested in. Lucky for him. He didn't write a check to his co-conspirators and leave a paper trail as long as the Mississippi River for the police to find.
I don't know who S.T thinks he is fooling here. I find S.T taking on 3 masked men at once is just as believable as one gay black man fighting off 2 large masked men shouting, "This is MAGA country!" in a targeted hate crime taking placed at 2AM in Chicago during a polar vortex. In the end, S.T gets his just deserts for his actions here. S.T thought that he was so smart. Turns out, the hunter was actually the hunted. The puppeteer was the puppet. And the victim was the true mastermind the whole time.
Sounds like a M. Night Shyamalan movie, right? You know what's crazier than fiction? Real life is with the recent case of Jussie Smollett -- the boy who cried MAGA. Like the title of this S.T song (So Far So Close) suggests, Jussie was so close in getting the liberal media to believe his fake news story yet so far away now that his scheme has blown up in his face. The craziest thing is...Donald Trump was right this whole time with his claims of fake news. M. Night Shyamalan, himself, couldn't right a crazier script.
If there's one thing that we can learn from Jussie Smollett and this MV, it's staging a crime doesn't pay. Sure, S.T may have ended up with a new girlfriend here. But, is it worth it to end up with a psychopathic girlfriend that may one day stab you to death in your sleep? I don't think so. I would rather take my chances with 2 Nigerian men wearing MAGA hats than having a crazy ex-girlfriend, you know what I'm saying?
